Extension and Experiment Station Publications
It can be very challenging to locate information about individual ISU Extension publications via the library website. Quick Search will list the name of the series, but it will not list individual publications within each series. The Parks Library Reference Collection has a List of Current Series, Serial Publications (Series Publications of Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service), published as of March 2004. It lists each publication from 1888-2004 (by title and publication number - and in some cases it will show an author name).

Abstract

Over one-half of Iowa's farmers rent part or all of the land they operate, and more than one-half of the state's farm land is rented. Interests of tenants and land owners are largely complementary. Each needs the other's resources as well as his own to operate a farm successfully. Rental arrangements provide the means for landlords and tenants to share mutual benefits from the joint use of each other's resources.

Many of Iowa's landlords and tenants are constantly searching for rental practices to overcome new as well as old tenancy problems. Most of these problems center around determining rent, improving farms, trying new farming practices, getting landlords and tenants together who complement each other's interests and resources, and complying with Iowa's laws and customs of leasing.
